    Default Siver color discontinued in all Corolla variants

    I have just been informed by Toyota Islamabad that I need to give some color option other than silver for my Altis booked in Sept. this year because Silver has been discontinued for all corolla variants. Now I am in a fix what to choose from all the dull and drab colors that Indus is offering. Shimmering green also discontinued.

    I was about to go for white but my wife said are you crazy? I am now thinking about strong blue. There is rumor that two new colors are being introduced, maroon and light sky blue.

    I have priority letter issued and delivered to Indus, in the meanwhile. The delivery month on the Booking order is December.

    The tragedy of life is not what we suffer, its rather what we miss.

    This color is available in the US. It's a very nice shade of blue and looks even nicer in person.

    Btw, the story about ICI not producing silver paint at the moment is just plain bs. I credit that to some creative salesperson at one of the Toyota dealerships. These salespeople are some of the biggest pathological liars on the planet and can come up with the most absurd excuses at a moments notice.

    @OP: your wife is right. Please don't go for white. PDM Corolla's white looks absolute crap when compared to that of the PDM Civic (Tafetta White), besides people would think it's an XLi -- that's somewhat of a reflex everyone has developed looking at the mostly white XLi's on the roads in Pakistan.

    Electric blue is surely exciting but in my case:

    1. For smaller cars.
    2. In someone else's vehicle!

    Go for Gun Metallic. It really looks good.
    Strong blue only looks good when its CLEAN.

    The Silver 1D4 is discontinued due to low sales, and as they were already offering a shade of silver (medium Silver) so its oky to discontinue it for them.

    Other then that, the weather in the US is a bit differnt, thats y i said the color looks lovely in overcast weather areas. It doesnt looks great in the sunny weather like in karachi.

    heres an examply my Vitz,


    Siver color discontinued in all Corolla variants -311342 Siver color discontinued in all Corolla variants -311343
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    ^ Indus's Storng blue needs a royal sheild coat on day 1, other wise the color fades in case you live in a karachi/Lahore like City.
